icff 2012: pattern

Even though I covered new wallpaper from ICFF yesterday, there was still plenty of pattern floating around the show. From flat weave rugs to incredible woven seating, designers definitely didn’t forget about the power of pattern. I’ve chosen my favorites above and below, so I hope you’ll enjoy them! xo, grace

Images above (including header): Incredible patterned rugs from Inigo Elizalde. You know you have a problem when a designer you’ve never met directs you straight to the metallic patterns because he knows you like them.

Debra Folz‘ patterned stool

I love these Ella Doran roller shades with photos of old 45s.

Malene B debuted some really gorgeous fabrics this year. These were my favorite, from her Transitions collection.

More new patterned design after the jump…

    What beautiful eye candy! I love that stool. And the Malene B fabric is georgous. Can’t wait to get my hands on some. Love the variety you chose. And it was funny that designer knew about your love of metallics;) Have a great weekend

    Al these prints are definitely inspiration for not only sewers but knitters too. Those chevrons especially…I see knitters using this pattern trying to recreate the classic Missoni pattern in scarves.

  3. Wow! Gorgeous patterns -looks like an amazing show!
